Global LCOE in solar PV systems by key country 2018 This statistic displays the minimum and maximum levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) globally for solar photovoltaic systems as of 2018 in selected countries. At this time, Japan's current LCOE for solar was between 71 and 213 U.S. dollars per megawatt hour. In recent years, electricity prices have increased mostly due to increased transmission and distribution investments. The LCOE is calculated by using the average cost to build and operate a power plant divided by its total power output over its lifetime. It is a measure of comparison between different electricity generation methods.
